I follow a lot of basketball recruiting throughout the country and one word that is often thrown around is the word '"coachable'". I got that label as a younger player and I took it as a compliment. Problem was I didn't really understand what it meant in relation to my skills as a basketball player. Is being a coachable player a skill? Of course it is and let's discuss why. First, let's go into what being coachable is and go from there.
A coachable player is one that is willing to take constructive criticism in any form and learn from it. Coachable players want to improve and understand that when they are being coached it is for their own good and for the good of the team.
